The Branch Secretary was briefed yesterday afternoon on the Council's Business Support Review, which includes a review of most admin and clerical functions across the local authority. Unfortunately, this briefing came after staff affected by the Review had been contacted to invite them to a series of staff briefings which are being held this coming Monday. We therefore knew very little other than it was going to happen at some point so had little or indeed no information to share with those of you who contacted us.

We've been advised that 297 members of staff are in scope for the Review and we'll endeavour over the next few days to identify each UNISON member who is part of it. It will however be really helpful if you can let us know - by email to the branch office ( or by replying to this message if indeed you are part of this review. We can then look at setting up communication channels between members and the Branch so that all your comments, observations and concerns can be discussed, shared and addressed.

Our Branch Chair Glen Anderson will be at all four staff briefings on Monday for UNISON and will ask members to let him or the office know if they are part of the Review.

Finally, just to say that the volume of work at the Branch right now is really high and it may therefore take a day or two for us to get back to you. But get back to you we will!
